In Wichita Falls, the Texas Ranch Roundup pits real-life ranches against one another in contests that test the day-to-day skills of working on a cattle operation. Ten ranches from across the state compete in the showdown, which is in its 35th year and takes place August 14-15, 2015 at the Multi-Purpose Event Center. The rodeo events include ranch bronc riding, calf doctoring, team branding, and wild cow milking. There’s also a chuck-wagon cooking contest, horsemanship competitions, and a trade show featuring bits, spurs, and Western collectibles.
